Summary This is a broad and accessible introduction to the study of blood. Fully revised and updated to reflect advances in the field and in clinical practice, this edition covers essential knowledge, from basic hematological physiology to blood disorders and their diagnosis and treatment. This book features expanded sections on the underlying mechanisms, diagnostic techniques and management of the malignant haematological diseases. It also incorporates recent advances in knowledge of thrombosis and the newer oral anticoagulants.
